Europe Beyond Access

Supporting disabled artists to break the glass ceilings of contemporary dance & theatre

Across the performing arts and across Europe disabled artists are pushing the boundaries of form, and are presenting audiences, fellow artists and arts professionals with one of the creative opportunities of our time.

Europe Beyond Access will:

  • Support disabled artists to internationalise their artistic innovations and their careers.
  • Develop a network of leading mainstream organisations with a commitment to present and commission at the highest level.
  • Build European audiences interested in high-quality innovative work by Europe’s disabled artists.
  • Develop tools and understanding in the wider performing arts market.
  • Collaborate with many of the world’s leading arts networks to champion excellent artistic works, and to educate arts professionals.
  • Advocate for change in a cultural sector that systematically marginalises disabled artists and arts professionals.

An audio-flyer introducing the project (especially useful for visually impaired users) is available here.
